Biochar’s carbon sequestration characteristics help mitigate climate change. It is naturally found in soil as a result of natural vegetation or forest fires.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: One of the main factors restricting the commercialization of biochar is the cost of biochar manufacturing equipment. However, investment is made in the R&D of biochar production technologies, which is expected to reduce the manufacturing cost of biochar. Also, governments worldwide are providing grants and subsidies to support capital for biochar production equipment. They are investing in R&D through public-private partnerships that have enhanced the production of innovative biochar equipment. These factors will help reduce the cost of biochar significantly in the next five years.

According to the report, the advantages of biochar carbon sequestration projects including reduction of greenhouse gases emissions are propelling market growth as carbon can be retained in the soil for a long period of time.
